Hmm. actually, turns out it's "only" bound in the various lisps and
other programming languages major modes (including the scratch buffer
and c-mode, btw), so you're right that it's not a _true_ global binding
(I just spend most of my emacs time in such modes...).  But it's very
long-standing as "indent expression" AFAIK, was in emacs 19.

It's  one of those "pseudo global" bindings where the keypress does a
conceptually similar thing in many modes - in lisp mode,
indent-pp-sexp, in c mode, c-indent-exp, in perl mode, perl-indent-exp,
and so on.
